Eternal Smiling For 30-Million To See

Rusty - March 12, 2008

Last night on American Idol 30-million people saw a quick clip of the garments of David Archuleta’s father (in the 10-year old video clip of David and his dad). And there’s no question that’s what we were looking at.

Have there ever been more eyes on a single pair of G’s?

  1. I didn’t notice. I was wondering if we were going to get a glimpse of Brooke White’s.

  2. What? Did he have his shirt off or something?

    Comment by Seth R. — March 12, 2008 @ 7:24 am

  3. I noticed, but I have a feeling the rest of the world will only see a white T-shirt.

  4. “I didn’t notice. I was wondering if we were going to get a glimpse of Brooke White’s.”

    This seems pretty inevitable. Eventually she’ll be dancing around stage and her skirt or dress will flip up above her knees a little.

  5. Brooke White’s garments showed during Hollywood week. She lifted up her arms a couple of time and then were tucked in to her jeans – her shirt lifted up enough that if you are familiar with what they are you know. Other people probably thought she was wearing a tshirt under her top.

    There are a few people who have been weidrly questioning David Archuletta’s mormonism, that video last night should put any of theose questions to rest.

    I’m living in an area where many people know Brooke White and her parents – her mom said last week that Brooke and David have been able to attend an LDS Ward in LA togther almost every sunday.

  6. Is Brooke married? I don’t think she’s old enought to have returned from a mission.

    Comment by Tim J. — March 12, 2008 @ 8:33 am

  7. Brooke is 24 and is married. Her husband has been to every performance (and they show him every time with the words “Brooke’s husband” on the screen).

    Comment by Cheryl — March 12, 2008 @ 8:44 am

  8. I saw the clip to.

    Lets see 5 kids, Dad in G’s, and a Honduran Mom. Screams active RM Dad who married somebody from his mission.

    I thought Brooke really nailed it last night. She also looks better with straight hair. She looked so good that Simon warned Ryan not to flirt with her.

    D Arch. looked not so good but he is still in it for a while.

    Either could maybe be in the final. It would be hilarious if it was all LDS final.

  9. Apparently I’m blind.

    Thanks.

  10. My DH caught it. Do you think that THEY realized it? Davids family I mean? Was it a- This is the only tape we have so Oh Well? or a- Oh SERIOUSLY??!! Did we just show that to the world?! or a- No big deal? Was it a big deal? I would think it’s somthing to avoid. Layin’ out in our G’s for the whole world to see- I mean. But that’s just me and I’m not making any judgment here. Just interesting. :)

  11. I wondered who watched that crap.

    Sort of like the cover story in the April Atlantic Monthly, about the hundreds of paparazzi who hang out around Brittney Spears. I wondered who cared enough to buy the magazines that have the trashy stories and photos.

    But now I know. It’s the same folks who watch American Idol.

  13. Haha. I just re-watched it. He’s sitting there with no shirt on! It just looks like a regular tshirt, though, only a Mormon would catch it. And I didn’t even.

  14. I’m an AI freakzoid, sorry Tim J. :)

    If anyone is interested, I blog about AI every week…

    Comment by Cheryl — March 12, 2008 @ 9:27 am

  15. I used to be snobby like Mark B about American Idol. You just don’t know what you’re missing.

    For the record, I don’t read tabloids. Or any magazines at all, actually.

    Comment by Susan M — March 12, 2008 @ 9:35 am

  16. Mark B. -

    I hate Britney Spears and all news coverage about her. I don’t even know what Atlantic Monthly is, and yet I still love American Idol.

    Comment by Cheryl — March 12, 2008 @ 9:39 am

  17. Mark B – Three years ago we visited my sister-in-law and her family in Vietnam. Their choices for television were quite limited and so AI became a favorite of theirs. After being there for two weeks I was a bit hooked myself (you jhave to watch your behavior when you visit those Asian countries!;-)) and when we came home we continued to watch it for the rest of the season (it was the Carrie Underwood season and I was upset that Vonzel lost out to Carrie and Bo Bice). Anyway, in subsequent years I haven’t watched it but this post makes me want to start again. It really is fun.

    Comment by Lamonte — March 12, 2008 @ 12:15 pm

  18. Mark B – I’m a 27 year old heavy metal fan, I dislike television in general, despise “celeb” news, can’t stand excessive marketing, and know for a fact that about 90% of American Idol is calculated, money-hungry insincerity, and that the contestants are nowhere near the “undiscovered talent” that they claim to be.

    But that show is like crack, man.

    Comment by kwk — March 12, 2008 @ 1:36 pm

  19. I am 99% sure I’ve seen Brooke White opening for Matt Nathanson at a local college in Virginia a couple of years ago. Had no idea she was mormon(in fact, my wife and I thought she was drunk…but looking back on it, I guess she was just deliriously happy to perform in front of a large audience).

    She put on a great show, and signed CDs afterwards. It’s kind of funny how American Idol is painting her as a complete nobody; just a nanny with a dream who had no idea she could be a professional singer.

    So, um…yeah. Go Brooke!

    Comment by Casual Mormon — March 12, 2008 @ 2:41 pm

  20. kwk: What kind of metal are you into? (Anyone posting on a Mormon blog who is a metal fan I have to talk to.) Drop me an email: whenigodeaf@gmail.com

    Comment by Susan M — March 12, 2008 @ 3:01 pm

  21. I don’t think Brooke has really made a secret of the fact that she’s been pursuing a career in music – I think they said in her little bio thing last night she moved to LA for that reason specifically. But the reality is that so far, she’s made more money as a nanny than she has as a musician.

    Comment by bandanamom — March 12, 2008 @ 4:19 pm

  22. I’m guessing a lot of who they end up picking for the show depends on how much prior experience they have. If they had only non-experienced singers and put them on a stage live in front of millions of viewers, what a train wreck it would be. As it is, the level of train-wreck-ness the show has now is perfect.

  23. After seeing my double posting above, I feel a little like Yossarian. If you don’t get that, quit reading American Idol and go read Catch-22.

    I will confess, though, that I have watched a few episodes of American Idol, before my son went to college. Those were the early episodes with the atrocious singers and the funny lines from the Brit.

    In this context, though, I like the “AI” abbreviation for American Idol. Long before this usage (was this blog the first place?), AI stood for Artificial Intelligence, which is half right about American Idol: Artificial, but no Intelligence. But, before that, AI was the euphemism of choice for Artificial Insemination, since if your dad was the AI guy for the county extension service you darn well didn’t want to go around telling your buddies at school that your dad was the artificial inseminator for the county and what he did and where he put his hands when he went to work.

    There is an uncanny similarity, though, to American Idol.

  25. They were the most depressing group of people Yossarian had ever been with. They were always in high spirits. They laughed at everything.

    The Texan turned out to be good-natured, generous and likable. In three days no one could stand him.

    My favorite book.

  26. Wouldn’t it be kind of hard for David Archuleta to have garments when he is only 17 years old?

  28. This post is referring to his dad. In a clip of an old home movie it showed him lounging in his garment, no shirt over it.

  29. Mark B-

    I don’t watch American Idol either but that may have more to do with my lack of TV channels than my intellectual superiority. Then again, I may be intellectually superior.

    Anyway, the matter of which is more a waste of time, watching American Idol or (nearly?) every baseball game of a season. :)

  31. It’s not really a big deal…they probably wouldn’t have thought people would care…a lot of parents wear their garments around the house…I kinda think of them as pajamas…you get them after you’re married and sealed in the temple…I hope this info. helps
